Off to see Puig!
Tonight, I’ll be hitting up Yankee Stadium. I definitely wanted to make it to one of the Yankees-Dodgers games to see Yasiel Puig. Maybe he’ll hit a HR and I can sell my ticket stub on eBay for $300. That’s what his Bowman mini refractors are going for these days, right? I’m sitting 10 rows up in right field, so I’ll probably catch the Puig oppo-field homer. It’s my only chance since I don’t expect the Yankees to hit any HRs, or score any runs for that matter.
It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to go to a Yankees game to see an opposing player. I think the last time I did that was toward the end of Ken Griffey Jr’s career.
There are some good storylines too. Donnie Baseball’s return to the Bronx, as well as Hiroki Kuroda facing his old team. I wish I was there this afternoon for Mattingly’s “official” return, but I’m sure he’ll still get a warm welcome tonight.
